^love it. That's a scene you won't get flying with AI.

Aaalrighty, hosting A-10C. Feel free to get your practice on, no pressure, just have some fun. I'll help out as much as I can, but I don't know keyboard commands, mapped everything I need to hotas and the rest I just flick in the cockpit.

Sorry, think I've gone overboard with the screenies!
Just a little something to keep the groundcrew out of trouble!
Reheat? Who put reheat on an A-10?
Hopefully some debris hit the guys who fired the missile!
Arclight doing what Arclight did best.
Another three taken out with one cluster bomb!
Arclight did sustain some damage, just a few holes and a missing wingtip.
Oh, and a shredded tyre.

What a game (sim), if anybody is in doubt about getting it then don't be! :D

Arclight 04-21-2011 08:55 PM

Wasn't aware of the shredded tire: she veered off the runway the moment it touched down. :haha:
Berbunch joins me on terra firma.
DCS A-10C: Truckbuster, GAU-8/A FTW Edition.

Just doing the flying thing with Berbunch:
This again. Damn you, MWS! You too, RWR. :shifty:

edit: oh right: most I got with 1 cluster bomb was 2 tanks. The run where I hit 3 was with 2 bombs delivered. ;)

Off-topic but I must express my awe. Darn those cockpits are detailed in A-10! :yeah:

Pick your jaw off the floor and download the Photorealistic Cockpit for your Kamov. :up:

Arclight 04-22-2011 05:04 PM

Edited first post, think it has all the correct information. I'll be editing the A-10C setup further to make it a little more interesting.

Herr-Berbunch 04-23-2011 03:09 PM

Woo hoo, BS arrived today! :yeah:

Thanks for editing first post, makes life a lot easier as this thread grows.

Arclight 04-25-2011 07:31 AM

Righto, running Ka-50 for a bit. Just feel like flying, might as well open it up. :)

Dowly 04-27-2011 02:11 PM

Arclight 04-28-2011 12:07 AM

Because I was bloody tired. :haha:

Sorry, dozed off last night. :oops:

Could do the Ka-50 tonight, more pilots for that one. Was kinda looking forward to the A-10 though. :hmmm:

Herr-Berbunch 04-28-2011 04:44 AM

And there was me thinking Arclight was nocturnal.

I don't mind either tonight, if it's KA-50 I'd advise steering clear of me as I've had NO attempt at flying it yet, or even starting it up! I don't hold much hope of successfully getting airborne and attacking anything other than a patch of grass just off the airfield (and by attack I mean crash, and by just off the airfield I mean just off the apron! :D).

Gotta learn somehow!

Dowly 04-28-2011 09:56 AM

If it makes you feel any better, I haven't done a single manual start-up to date. :O:


I might be up for some Black Shark tonight, that is, if none of the A-10 bunch have any objections. :hmmm:

Not really making me feel any better - at least (once started) you've flown it once or twice. :yep:

Anyway I've got 30 mins to learn now, then back on when the wife's gone out and my girl's in bed (as in daughter).

Dowly 04-28-2011 10:32 AM

Actually, I just did a manual start-up... by flicking all kinds of switches and pushing buttons and the darn thing started up! It's fool-proof! :rotfl2:

Oberon 04-28-2011 10:47 AM

HunterICX 04-28-2011 11:02 AM

Never started up the Blackshark the other way then the manual procedures.

anyway as for tonight if I was having other plans so it wouldn't matter for me what you decide to fly tonight.

(not sure how long it would've stayed in the air, tho... I'm sure some of the switches should've been turned to OFF position after engine start...)

Herr-Berbunch 04-28-2011 12:07 PM

Any hints on how to bind collective to sidewinder throttle?

Arclight 04-28-2011 01:54 PM

Should just be a matter of assigning the right axis to the function, wouldn't know otherwise. :hmmm:

* Ka-50 server up for practice, mission by 21:00.

Arclight 04-28-2011 06:41 PM

Oooh, grabbed a few nice ones me thinks:
Ferret > Sukhoi
Bit of rearming.
Bit of ambushing a convoy.
1 of 2 air kills of the day. :smug:
And the obligatory showboating.
